Motorcyclist Killed in Saugus Crash on Copper Hill Drive and Tamarack Lane

Saugus, California (February 29, 2020) – A motorcycle rider died Friday evening in a collision with a car in Saugus, according to a local news source.

At around 6:18 p.m. Friday, February 28, the authorities received a report about a traffic accident involving a motorcycle and a car on Copper Hill Drive and Tamarack Lane, near Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic Church.

According to the authorities, the motorcycle rider and the vehicle collided for unknown reasons at the Saugus intersection.

The motorcyclist, whose name has not been disclosed notification of next of kin, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the vehicle, that vehicle’s sole occupant, suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital.

No other injuries were reported.

An investigation into the crash is underway.

“Far too many motorcycle collisions are caused by the carelessness or recklessness of other motorists. Sadly, when this occurs, motorcyclists are the ones who tend to suffer the vast majority of injuries”, according to Arin Khodaverdian, Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group. Under California’s rule of comparative negligence, a victim may be able to collect compensation for injuries and other damages even if you were partly at fault for the accident.

What to Do At the Accident Scene

Nobody is ever prepared for an accident. However, knowing what to do in case you are involved in the accident is very crucial. The following steps will help you ensure your safety and the safety of others.

  • Stay at the scene and don’t panic.
  • Check for injuries and immediately call for an ambulance if anyone is hurt.
  • Notify the police even if no one is injured. The police will examine the scene and document the accident. At this point, it is important to record accurate information. You can later request a police report.
  • If the accident is minor, it is advisable to move the vehicles to the shoulder and turn on your vehicle's hazard lights to ensure the safety of other motorists.
  • Gather information about the other drivers involved in the accident. Also, talk to witnesses and get their information.
  • If possible, take photos of the damage to your car and the surrounding area.
  • Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone. Do not sign any papers unless requested by the police.
  • Do not leave the accident scene until the police have left.  

After leaving the accident scene,

  • Contact your insurance company as soon as possible.
  • Get a copy of the accident report from the police.
  • Get a property damage valuation.
  • If you were injured in the accident, keep detailed notes of your injuries and track your medical treatment.
